Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

1 Answer

Lost Hard drive

Okay so originally, the computer says "Operating System Not Found" when I turned on my Acer Aspire 3680 notebook. But then, when I try to fix it, it would tell me that there is "no fixed disks present." What is going on and what do I do?

    That totally freakin sucks. But you are probably right.
    I have run multiple recovery disks on it and no matter what it says that message...Soooo I have to find the money somehow to get a new hard drive.
    Thanks for the help :)

Acer Aspire 3680-2762 cannot find the built-in wireless Lan card


The driver for your wireless card should be HERE.

If that doesn't enable it, you can go to the Acer drivers site and download the driver for your system HERE.

You can Select
"Notebook, Ultrabook" --> "Aspire" --> "Aspire 3680"

Then select your operating system from the pop-up and select the Drivers tab.

No restore cd


I have an Acer 3680 series laptop and it originally came with Windows Vista Basic (now I have Windows 7 32 bit on it).

But, anyway, on Windows XP, Vista, and 7 the restore is done by going to the help menus and typing in 'restore' or 'recover' whichever route you want to go.

Data is stored on the computer's hard drive that can take the computer all the way back to the day it was new, or to a freshly installed state of the operating system.

I hope this helps.

Hello,

its showing operating system not found, because the system cannot detect your hard disk.

Open your system, remove and fix back the hard disk, then try again.

Take care.

My acer Aspire 3680 notebook has no sound


You might just need to go to your computer manufacturer's website and update your drivers. Try this; if this doesn't work, try doing a system restore. If your system restore fails, then try reformatting your hard drive and then reinstalling your operating system.

MY VISTA WINDOWS WONT LOAD


Okay, I think I can help you but I need some more information. I'm assuming your Acer laptop currently has a version of Windows XP installed, yes? And Acer gave you a CD to upgrade your OS to a version of Windows Vista?

And when you mean that you go to your BIOS to access the CD, I'm assuming that you are talking about the boot options menu (selecting the cd drive vs the hard drive or floppy drive or what not) correct?

When you select the CD drive to boot from, what exactly happens? Do you get any error message? Does the computer turn off? Does it appear to try to load from the CD and then switch to your hard drive instead (and load your existing operating system)?
